Key to the Situation -nee Advertising.
Past Fifty? You 1
Need "Cascarets"
What glasses are to weak eyes, Cas
carets are to Weak bowels- lu
cent box will truly amaze you.
Most old people must give to the bowels
some regular help, else they. suffer from
constipation. The condition la perfectly
natural. It Is just as natural aa It la
for old people to walk slowly. For age
Is -never so active aa youth. The muscles
are less elaatlc. And the bowels are
n.a soles.
So all old people peed Cascarets. On
might as well refuse to aid weak eyes
with glasses as to neglect this gentle
aid to weak bowels. The bowels must
be kept active. This Is Important at all
ages, but never so much as at fifty.
Age Is not a time for harsh nhvir
Vouth may occasionally whip the bowels
Into activity. Ilut a lash can't be used
every day. What tha bowels of the old
ned is a gentle and natural tonic. One
that can be constantly used without
harm. The only such tonle Is Cascarets
and they cost only 10 cents per box at
any drug stont. They work while you

ings used by the government through the
construction of hcV buildings, to cost
Vbout $100,000,000 to, be paid, for through
a .period of twenty years.
To Save Ileal Money.
"Briefly stated," wrote the president,
"my suggestion Is that tho government
first plan Its land purchases, buildings
and publlo works, then'borrow money to
acquire and construct them,' proportion
ing the cost over, a' period of .twenty
years, and making the bonds Issued to
meet the cost payable out ot an adequate
sinking fund."
Of a reduction of the1 salary roll of the
government, amounting to about $$,600,000
annually, two-thirds, the president de
clared, would be saved by adopting his
scheme to classify what ,are now presi
dential appointments. Almost $3,000,000
annually could.be kept In government
coffers' through Postofflce department
changes. The sum of $2,000,000 would be
cut from tho payroll, Mr. Taft continued,
If thero were a complete executive re
classification of civil service) employes.
Under this head the president wrote:
"In the present situation many men at
the bottom are receiving larger salaries
than would bo obtained for similar work
in outside employment, whereas men In
higher positions, carrying great responsi
bility ad the. success ot whose perform
ance depends on tralnlpg and long ex
perience, are Inadequately paid. From
the viewpoint of the rank and file there
Is little hope ot reward for merit. The
foundation for reclassification of salaries
already hSa been laid. In my opinion It
would enable the government to pay
higher salaries to those of whom experi
ence, training and Initiative are required
and make the saving of $3,000,000."
Snvlnrf In Other Directions.
Elimination of waste In the, distribution
of public documents, reduction of the
number of United States assay offices,
and possibly the number of mints and
their consolidation Into one. are other
recommendations. . ,
"With much hesitation." the president
recohiniends the organisation of a budget
committee of congress. It should act aa
a final clearing house through which all
the recommendations of the committees
having to tlo with revenues and expend!,
tures would pass before they take the
form of bills.
The special reason 1 have for urging
this committee." wrltea the president, . s
that at present the administration is se
riously handicapped by not being able
to take up proposals for constructive
measures affecting any particular depart
ment with any one body or committee
which will undertake to consider them in
oil their aspects."
Going further, the president suggetei
that appropriations should be In the fol
lowing classes:
To cover overhead and operating cost.

Kor permanent Improvements.

Concluding, he says: "The government
Is not only In the position ot having gine

' MEXICO CITT, Feb. 26. The departure
from Mexico of Ernesto Madero, former
minister of finance, was followed Imme
diately by a hurried counting of the cash
In the government treasury. The result
showed a balance of $33,000.
This amount does not represent all Im
mediately available resources of the new
administration, as there are various de
posits In both local and foreign oanxs

who was said to have been shot dead near
Monterey while attempting to Join the
rebels at Nuevo Laredo.
